RE: I miss ... simplicity

Will consider it, or maybe even will find I can retract the
simplicity statement after a while...

I was not so much making a point about SVN as I was about
the ongoing thread where there is obviously a hunger on the
part of some for simplicity, and hoped maybe we could remember
what all has irked us about hmm... now who was it? Jekyl or
Hyde? It seemed the level of "its not the SVN way" replies
was on the rise, and it gave me a shudder... and I actually
found myself thinking CVS wasn't as dead as I might have
been tempted to think... I'll go back to lurking until
I can contribute something with a bit (lot) more meat.
